Larry Crowne : first review & videos

June 09, 2011

Yesterday evening, Tom Hanks was invited on the French evening news to talk about his new movie Larry Crowne. We've added that video in our archive in the section called Foreign Interviews.
In that interview, he also compared his experiences from his work at the theater to the roles he played on the big screen, and spoke about the fun he had by going from playing tragedy to comedy. He also said that he saved a lot of time on the set of Larry Crowne because he was in the director’s chair. This meant that he didn’t have to spend hours debating about his character’s intentions whilst catering to the vision of the director. It made the process much faster when it came down to shooting scenes. When speaking about Julia Roberts, he praised her for her excellence, and intelligence when it came to using anger to bring out the comedy of the moment.
We've also added two more videos about the premiere in London, as well as a video of Tom Hanks introducing his movie in front of the audience, that was posted by strobestudio on Youtube. You'll find those three videos in the Movie Premieres section of the archive.


You can also read in our press archive the first movie review that has been published on the Internet. Looks like the movie is quite good !

The exchanges between Hanks and (George) Takei during these scenes are laugh-out-loud moments, truly a delight to watch. […] Without Tom Hanks’ veritable charms this film would not work at all, but with him at the helm it becomes a likeable, funny, and roundly entertaining experience.
